Tomorrow I promise I'll tell you about my Thanksgiving, for now:
Escape in a BottleRoomy and I went out Saturday night, and by "went out" I mean after she finished babysitting and I woke up from my post Sex and the City nap/cuddle session with Delilah the Daschund we had one beer at the bar around the corner. Upon entering the bar we realized it was Saturday. We only realized this because the bar was crowded, full of young people; Roomy guessed most were younger than us. I'd been to this bar a couple of times before and always remember it being very quiet, rather empty, and catering to an older crowd. That shows how often I'm out on the weekends. IF, big if, I go out, it is typically on the weekday because I start at 1 or 2 pm on weekdays and either 8 or 9:30 am on weekends. We were quickly overwhelmed by the energy of the place, one too many mosh-pit-type physical exclamations to music. Drank our beers and went home, made popcorn, watched Sex & The City, and went to bed. For some reason it amused me, the entire event. I couldn't tell if I felt old, mature, introverted, mellow, or a wonderful mix of the three. Am I becoming a homebody? Ha! No. Well, maybe just in the evenings, especially on weekends.
Escape From Connection
When my Rommy's brother's subscription to internet ended, we had to decide what to do about renewing. After very brief discussions, we decided to try out no internet in the apartment. The idea behind this was to reduce lazy time and increase productivity and reconnection with hobbies and people. So far, I think this has been really successful. The apartment seems to get cleaner, more organized, and I only seek out internet, aside from when I'm at work, for intentional purposes. This helps so much! I love it like this, and I'm supporting my local coffee shop! I've read a lot more this way too, which I thought was lacking due to not using the public transport, and biking everywhere. Silly, misdirected reasoning.
Escape to a Fantasy World
I am very excited to announce that I saw the final movie in the Twilight Series. I am a proud lover of Twilight and Edward Cullen. I'll stop there; I won't get all freaky vampire love on you. I went with my good friend Carleen for a visit to the movie theater! Something that was once an almost weekly occurrence as a child is such a special treat now. She's a good 40 minute bike ride away, which is also a great way to just spend time in your head, not always to my benefit. The movie was just what we needed as life has been a bit dramatic lately for both of us. Thank goodness for epic transformations and crazy special effects filled battle scenes. Drama, right?
